Topic: Oh No, They've Just Discovered Kryptonite Here!


Looks like I have to find a new planet to live on now since they've just discovered kryptonite on this one..
(and I thought that I'd be safe on this one after my home planet Krypton exploded.... )

Quote:
A NEWLY-found mineral contains the same elements described in the fictional kryptonite used by the enemies of comic-book and film superhero Superman, a scientist says.

The white and powdery mineral at London's Natural History Museum has been named instead jadarite after the Serb region where it was found, museum mineralogist Chris Stanley said.

In the 2006 movie Superman Returns, the superhero's arch enemy Lex Luthor steals a kryptonite rock fragment from the Metropolis Museum. On the case are written the words "sodium lithium boron silicate hydroxide with fluorine".

Mr Stanley said he searched the web using the mineral's chemical formula - sodium lithium boron silicate hydroxide - and was "amazed'' to discover the same scientific name used in the film.
